Two Children from SUV on I-15
Two children were ejected from a vehicle in a crash on I-15 Saturday afternoon. The single-vehicle rollover crash happened around 2 p.m. on northbound I-15 just south of Midway.
According to the San Bernardino County Fire Department, a blue SUV carrying six people crashed on the center divider for unknown reasons. Two children, one about 8 months old and the other between 1-2 years old, were ejected from the vehicle. Emergency responders then airlifted the children and one injured adult in to a trauma center. The extent of their injuries is unknown.
3 More Injured in Second I-15 Crash Saturday
A second I-15 crash occurred near Harvard Road in Newberry Springs the same afternoon. The three-vehicle collision sent three people to the hospital with unknown injuries.
Fourth of July weekend traffic had already caused significant backups. The two accidents then added to existing delays, causing traffic to come to a standstill Saturday afternoon.
“Our thoughts are with everyone recovering from these crashes, especially the young children. Parents, please remember that properly restraining your child in a car seat greatly reduces the risk of ejection. No matter how short the trip, your child must always be buckled into an approved safety seat,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
